Notes

This is a "band approved" SBD recording available for download circulation. A wonderful, sublime recording in every way, showcasing the NRPS with Jerry Garcia perfectly.

The SHNs for this NRPS set were taken from this version of the complete show with the Grateful Dead. The SHNs were not seekable. New seekable SHNs were run off of the wavs. Nothing regarding these files was changed beyond making a new seekable SHN set. Added to etree by Noah Weiner

Subject: Some great moments.
NRPS at this stage, for me, varies widely between sublime and annoying. Worth checking out if you like twang.

Subject: Get the night before also
Love the Riders,especially the early stuff.This and the night before are both prestine in sound quality and the performances are both top notch early NRPS.Just laid back but still kicking it up for the last run @ Filmore East with the Dead, Jerry is having a blast.You can almost feel how buzzed these guys were.With Dave Nelson being the only member alive from this line up,go see the latest incarnation of the Riders.You'll definately come away with a true smile in your heart,and realize,the rest of this '71 line up is smiling down and digging it along with you.

If you are using Windows XP the following is for you:

....Holy Smokes...shn files? what? uh...if you are like me and don't know what this crap is, go here and download the converter:

http://etree.org/mkw.html

It's easy to convert the shn files to Wave Sound files, just drag and drop them in the Mkw Audio Compression Tool application window and it converts the files automatically. Then you can open the files in Windows Media Player...make a playlist, etc..

You might want to keep your shn files, since they are lossless files from what I am able to decipher in the last 5 minutes I spent out of my life trying to figure out what the heck shn files are...damn audiophiles always chasing the "perfect format" for recording.

Okay to the music...well, if you made it to this page, do I have to tell you it's great? Nope.

I remember seeing the Riders several times in the early 70's with the GRATEFUL DEAD, and their free concert(s) in Central Park in Manhattan, NYC.

Thanks for the Love.

great addition to anyone's 4-29-71 sweet soundboards of the dead. this was the final night at the fillmore east for those guys, not sure whether or not nrps slipped in again or not, though i doubt it since they were on tour with the dead.

it really adds a lot to hear the fullness of the show. jerry was working hard those days, sometimes playing as many as 5 or 6 sets a night!

btw, nrps rocks here, too.
